Storyline

Coach Roy once was college basketball's top mastermind. But lately his attentions have been on his next endorsements, not on his next game. What¹s more, Roy's temper has run amuck, leading to his being banned from college ball until he can demonstrate compliance--in other words, not explode every time he walks onto the court. Roy waits and waits; for a suitable coaching offer, but he receives only one: the Mount Vernon Junior High School Smelters basketball squad. Roy reluctantly accepts the offer, hoping that a few weeks at the school will prove his good intentions and restore him to his high-living ways as a celebrated college coach. But when old school meets middle school, Coach Roy doesn't know what hit him. It's not until Roy decides to teach his young charges some new concepts--like passing, rebounding, dribbling, and scoring--that the Smelters begin to find success and Roy finds something long thought lost: his love of the game.

We All Know The Formula But Still....
4 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those typical sports movie that everyone knows the outcome. I knew what was going to happen, but I kind of enjoyed myself somewhat. Martin Lawrence brings a good presence to the screen no matter what movie he's in. The kids were sweet but I can compare them to the kids in Kicking and Screaming.

This is about a hotshot college basketball coach who has been banned from life because of his anger management. The only way to get his reputation back is that he has to coach a misfit middle school team.

Overall, this was a decent film. I have seen better sports films. I probably would not have seen this if I wasn't forced to by my summer camp. I rate this film 7/10.
